25 Things You Have To Do This Winter

Though I’m not the biggest fan of the snow (or freezing temps), with winter comes the holidays, and that, I am a big fan of. The overall sense of joy and love in the air is so fun. 

Spending time with the ones you love becomes even more amped up in the winter time, and those cold, dark winter nights call for more quality nights in with your loved ones, cuddled up with some hot chocolate. 

In the summer time I put together a bucket list of fun things I wanted to accomplish over the hot months, and it was so fun to aim at checking them all off! Doing some of the things I love most, as well as trying some new things really helps to always have something to look forward to.

Home Decor Hacks For Twenty-Somethings

I don’t know about you, but I don’t really know how to do this whole adult thing. 

I mean, we’re not reeeeally taught how to do anything, and every day is kind of just another day to wing it. One thing that can really show our age is the way we present our home. 

Young adults and/or college kids tend to have a bit of a stereotype when it comes to the way their house or apartment is going to be. 

  • Dishes everywhere
  • Pantry stalked with instant meals and ramen noodles
  • Laundry piled high
  • What’s a vacuum?

You get the picture. And you don’t want that persona, do ya!?

The fall season definitely comes with some of the best decor. The colors are so inviting and warm, and also adding in a little spookiness for the holidays is always fun. 

Your front step is what should be getting the most attention during the Halloween season! This is probably the time of year that it gets the most attention, and all those kids (and their parents!) are going to see if you put any effort into “spooking” up your porch. 

Unfortunately in my current home I don’t have much for a front step – just square concrete steps. But that doesn’t mean I can’t dream of the day I have a beautiful front porch!

Staying Productive When You’re Stressed

Staying Productive When You're Stressed

Keeping on top of your game and getting all your shiz done can be so difficult when you add stress into the mix. 

I know what it’s like to be stressed. I’m a student, I’ve worked full time and done school at the same time, I’ve dealt with grief, depression, anxiety, money issues, self-esteem issues and all of the above at the exact same time. It ain’t easy. And when you’re that stressed, all you want to do is curl into a ball in bed and do absolutely nothing. I get it.

But even though you feel like your life may be crumbling and beating you to a pulp, the world around you keeps going. And you need to too. 

When it comes to being stressed (which is most of the time, lol) I’m decently good at doing the things that absolutely have to be done – like showing up to work and completing assignments on time. What I tend to skip out on is the other stuff like taking complete care of myself, spending time with friends, or putting more effort into my hobbies (aka blogging!).
